Becoming an artist
I wanted to tell you about my worst gig as an illustrator. It's a true story for all you aspiring artists chasing the dream to draw for a living.
Years ago, when I was young, dumb and full of hope, my older brother who's a web-designer asked me to help him out with a webpage he was putting together for a client. I was desperately trying to get some work as a comic artist, but I would have drawn anything just to make a buck. Then my brother told me that the webpage he worked on was for a piercing studio.
I give you all a minute to process this.
As you probably guessed, they were doing intimate piercings and they wanted to put up drawings of the piercings instead of photos because... well... everyone who's ever had the pleasure of seeing an intimate piercing up close knows why. But 300 Swiss Francs for a couple of genitals? Sounds like a job for me! This was serious money for an artist who was drawing for 20$ a page at that time, but was actually living on social welfare, drawing like a

Lately I've been on cloud ten! Like bear the drums and smile! More like myself for sure since starting anti depressants. Depression is a deep dark place that sucks your life essence and you don't even know it! So I finally started on some medication a couple no the back and it is really working for me. I can concentrate on art again and I'm happy which is the most important thing! I know it's still taboo to talk about depression but if we do talk about it maybe that can help others! And I want everyone to best the shot out of depression so yeah. Talk and get better!
Hi!
I'm a professional illustrator living in Montreal, Quebec. I began my career as a colorist working for Digital Webbing Presents and soon after on the hugely popular video game comic adaptation, Bloodrayne.
My clients include, Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Hi-Fi Color Design (DC Comics), Boom! Studios, Devil's Due Publishing, Studio Lounak (Assassin's Creed) and many more small press publishers.
In 2011 I sold out of my co-created comic: "Space Captain" at the Montreal Comic Con and I hope to get back to writing and coloring more installments of the character with my partners in crime, co-writer Laura Burton-Bloom and penciler Kyle Butler.

Currently I'm working as a colourist for a Belgian Publisher on a book called J.Rom :Force of Gold
I'm also working on my comic book sequential portfolio and a slot games digital art portfolio.

I'll be attending the 2016 Montreal Comic Con selling my artwork.
